What the Heck is Variable Data Printing?!

When we talk to people about how awesome Variable Data Printing is, they give us a puzzled "Speak English!" look. Rightly so. Here's a quick explanation (so that you will love it, too).

Variable Data Printing, or VDP, is a way to create personalized, one-to-one communications with everyone on your contact list!

VDP is cool because you can change out names, text, pictures, images, or even whole documents automatically to match specific needs of those you are targeting. It's proven to increase your response rates up to 20 times more than if you don't use it.

That's pretty significant!

You can use it with letters, postcards, invitations, surveys, brochures, posters, catalogs, and so much more. These changes are all made automatically during a single printing run. If it can be printed, chances are it can use VDP.

We've had people use VDP with wedding invitations- changing photos from formal to casual depending on if it were a friend or family member receiving the invitation. Some had Temple Ceremony invites printed on them, too.

We hope you join us at our VDP seminar on Wednesday, February 23 in Room 3380 of the Wilkinson Center. We are holding two 45-minute sessions at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Sign up now!

Of course we will have refreshments.

And for an added bonus, we will be discussing QR Codes, you know, these funny looking square bar codes that are popping up everywhere. In fact, if you have a smart phone with a barcode scanner, scan it now and see what happens!

We hope to see you at our seminar.

Copy Centers (with Mail Services, too!)

You know, we have Print & Copy Centers all over campus. And we have Mail Services in the Wilkinson Center and at the UPB.

BUT WAIT... at the JFSB you can also mail your letters and packages with Fed Ex and UPS. Campus mail delivery is available there, too.

Here's a few things we offer at our Print & Copy Centers:
-Color and B/W copying and printing
-Colored papers and cardstocks
-Coil Binding
-3 Hole Punching
-Over-sized Posters
-Resume Printing

...and so much more!

Plus, you'll find stamps and envelopes at every Print & Copy Center.

Don't forget that you can bring your files by CD, flash drives, email, or through Cougar Prints.

Here is a quick video we made showing where you'll find the Print and Copy Centers, though we did leave out the MTC. We hope to serve you there!
